Prof. Hiroshi Amano, Nobel laureate in Physics 2014 from Nagoya University, Japan visited KIIT-TBI and discussed with our in-house innovators and team members.

Prof. Amano is a Doctor of Engineering. Initially, he studied Electrical Engineering at the University in Nagoya, which awarded him his doctorate in 1989. In 2002, he became a professor at Meijo University in Nagoya and later moved to Nagoya University. Later, he was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics together with Prof. Isamu Akasaki and Prof. Shuji Nakamura for “the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources

Such a noble beginning and global exposure will surely motivate our start-ups and young innovators to expand to their full potentials.
